Denver ties two cold weather records for September 8, sees second earliest snow on record

Record Cold Temperatures

From record heat to record cold. You must live in Colorado. 😉  Today, Denver tied two cold weather records and saw its second earliest snow on record.

As measured at Denver International Airport, the low temperature in the Mile High City dropped to 31 degrees at 7:33pm. This ties the record low temperature for September 8 last set in 1962. Going hand-in-hand with that record, it tied the record for the earliest freeze in Denver history last set on the same date.

Here in Thornton, we managed to stay just a hair warmer with a low of 32 degrees.

Notable as well is that the Mile High City’s official 1.0 inch of snow is the second earliest snowfall on record. The snow was also the first September snowfall seen in 20 years. The number one spot for earliest snow on record, September 3, 1962, remains secure.
